Here is how both films did at the box office in India’s first week: The Kerala Story vs. The Kashmir Files!
The Kashmir Files by Vivek Agnihotri and The Kerala Story adhere to the same trend. Here is a comparison of the two films’ box office results!
The Kerala Story Surprises at the box office
In terms of Indian box office performance, The Kerala Story has proven to be a big surprise. The movie has been doing exceptionally well in theatres despite almost having no pre-release buzz. In the next few days, it will likely join the 100 crore club, and a lot more unthinkable things will also probably occur.
Negative attention is gaining significant traction
The Kerala Story, starring Adah Sharma, Yogita Bihani, and others, was the subject of some controversy before it was released, and it continues to be a hotly debated movie even today. As the movie competes to join the 200 crore club at the Indian box office, it appears that this negative attention is gaining significant traction. Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files is influencing this trend.
The Kerala Story might achieve a larger target
The Kashmir Files, which was released last year, had a much slower start than expected but eventually made over 250 crores in India. Compared to the Vivek Agnihotri-directed film, The Kerala Story has a much larger beginning and a larger target.
The Kerala Story vs. The Kashmir Files
Here is a comparison of The Kerala Story and The Kashmir Files’ first seven days at the Indian box office, broken down by day:
Days The Kahmir Files vs. The Kerala Story
First Day 3.55 crores vs. 8.03 crores
Second Day 8.50 crores vs. 11.22 crores
Third Day 15.10 crores vs. 16.40 crores
First weekend 27.15 crores vs. 35.65 crores
Fourth Day 15.05 crores vs. 10.07 crores
Fifth Day 18 crores vs. 11.14 crores
Sixth Day 19.05 crores vs. 12 crores
Seventh Day 18.05 crores vs. 12.50 crores
First week 97.30 crores vs. 81.36 crores
It’s quite likely that the movie “The Kerala Story” will surpass the 100 crore mark in a few days or less after watching the box office trends. It’s interesting to observe how a controversial environment and negative attention for a film help him to make a respectable amount of money at the box office without even using widespread movie promotion.
